Hi I'm planning on building a gaming PC for around £350/$570.

Here are the parts chosen so far.

For some reason the RAM and graphics card isnt on there so:

RAM-http://www.amazon.co.uk/G-Skill-PC3-14900-1866MHz-9-10-...

Graphics Card-http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B005T4K9IA/?tag=hydra0b-21&h...

I'd like to be playing games like Planetside 2, tribes ascend and DOTA 2 on highish settings and was just wodering peoples views on the current build.

Thanks

So you have to stay with that cpu, i advice you to buy a better card like a 7770 ghz edition, it's better than the 6670 and the crossfire with 6670 and that cpu is very poorly scaled and supported.

You can get a 7770 for a few more pounds.

Hmm the 7770 is a bit more than I would want to spend, is there a cheaper alternative to the 6670?

No, there's the 7750, but the lowest prices are about the same as the 7770 ghz on that site (about ~75 pounds).
